According to reports, the Nirbhaya team, which was started after the Saki Naka rape incident, has rescued a teenager.

As per the guidelines by Mumbai Police for Nirbhaya Squad, the women safety squad will be on regular patrolling duty and would constitute a lady sub-inspector, a woman constable, a male constable and a driver. The squads will work to prevent the cases of harassment of girls, women and children.

In accordance with that, Khar Police on Friday, September 17, had saved a 19-year-old woman, who ventured over 100 metres into the sea at Carter Road in Bandra (West) in a bid to end her life following a quarrel with her husband.

The officials said that the Nirbhaya team was patrolling on the Khar end of Carter Road around 12.45 pm when they received information about a woman who had ventured into the sea, climbing over the rocks.

The woman, who is a Khar Danda resident, had married her boyfriend a few months ago. The cops said she had no complaint related to domestic violence or dowry harassment, but the couple had fought over some personal life choices.

The woman was counselled by the police and escorted back home. The cops also gave her their contact number in case she requires any assistance in future.
